Erik Michael Estrada is skydiving his way back into the music world…
The 34-year-old Latino singer/actor and his O-Town band mates, who reunited earlier this year after a decade-long hiatus from recorded music, have officially released their comeback song “Skydive,” the debut single from their forthcoming album Lines & Circles.
For this new track, the “Liquid Dreams” performers have slowed things down similar to the Backstreet Boys‘ underrated single “Incomplete.”
“‘Skydive’ is a dramatic song,” O-Town’s Trevor Penick confirms. “It starts with a simple piano and vocal, and by the end you hear a seventy-piece orchestra, and all four of us belting it out in 4-part harmony.”
“Skydive,” co-written by Samuel Adams and Marcel Wildy, was co-produced by O-Town member Jacob Underwood alongside Mark Suhonen.
Lines & Circles, due out on August 3, will be O-Town’s third full-length and first album since 2002’s O2.
O-Town, minus Ashley Parker Angel, announced an official reunion at the end of March, 10 years after the group disbanded in 2004.
“We started this reunion purely for the fun of it,” said Underwood. “We had discussed a summer tour to perform our old songs and finally give the fans what they’ve been asking us for the last 10 years. However, once we began working, what developed was something a little more ambitious. The ideas kept flying and we couldn’t help but start making new music.”
